You're Out!: Father Saves Son's Cell Phone Distracted Face From Loose Bat At Baseball Game

March 7, 2016


This is a shot of a father saving his son's face from a loose bat during a recent Pittsburgh Pirates vs Atlanta Braves training game in Kissimmee, Florida. Apparently the boy was deep into a game on his cell phone when the bat got loose, and if it weren't for the reflexes of his father, would be looking significantly more black and blue right now. Would it have been wrong to let the bat hit him to teach him a lesson about paying attention to your surroundings and not playing games on your phone at a baseball game? I'm asking for a friend who hopefully doesn't already have children.

Keep going for one more shot a millisecond after of the bat wrapping around the kid's head.


Thanks to JB, who would have caught that bat then broken it over his knee because he doesn't take shit from no flying bats, not even Batman.

    Wow this website really needs to do some research, the 9 year old child you're ridiculing had just taken a picture of the batter and was sending it to his mom. He wasn't deep into a game. And who cares if he was? He's 9! This article and the following comments are disgusting.

    I would like to tell you that its all good natured ribbing and that no offence was intended but the horrible truth: this is not a place for the intellectually enlightened but rather a place for the miscreants of the internet and as such we hold nobody to account unless for facile entertainment. That said please enjoy this picture of a 'Man Going HAM on Cellphone Users'

  • The real story here is that the quick reflexes of this Paratrooper saved the kids face. Great work, Zee!

    Where is the gal in the red cap sitting, exactly? From my angle, it looks like the kid was getting lucky.

    And she's watching the dude on the right in the front row blow the guy on the left. Although it's bad technique, because instead of resting is left elbow on the rail, he should be using that free hand to cup the balls.

    Should have let him get hit, might have taught him a life lesson.

  • Melissa Jasper

    Ah yes, the lesson of concussion? Brain damage, maybe? Death? You're kind of a sick puppy.

  • palpable ovaltine

    Yes, the lesson that baseball is somehow both boring and hazardous.

  • Jay Koski

    The story behind the story is: dad was actually just backhanding his fat son and happened to block the bat.

  • shashi

    some one must photoshop the bat out of the second picture and the caption must read: 'man goes H.A.M. on phone users'

  • Bling Nye

    The absence of the bat makes everyone else's poses that much funnier too.

  • TheQiwiMan

    LOL @ people who still go to baseball games and think its entertainment.

  • James

    Just because you don't have the intellect to understand something as sophisticated as baseball, does not mean that others do not.

    You sound like a typical leftist who thinks that unless you enjoy something nobody else should get to enjoy it either.

  • TheQiwiMan

    LOL people projecting as hard as you are right now always make me so wet.

  • Melissa Jasper

    I am with you. The kid probably didn't want to go to the game anyway. Baseball is so boring.

  • LOL people who comment in blogs and think they mean anything. Sorry life you got there, with really low standards.

  • Melissa Jasper

    And your comment is any different? So hypocritical. LOL "Posts to blog posts mean nothing to anyone...except mine. Mine means EVERYTHING."

  • Putting words in my mouth doesn't make you right or smart. I can comment on the comments of others by calling them morons...this is not the same thing as inferring I am smarter, just that what you said makes you sound dumb.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Obviously it meant enough to upset you, right?

    Marry me. :-)
